For the record, I’ve had multiple exchanges with Mitch Ratcliffe about his response to me, in the comments here, in the comments there and in email. I still remain perplexed and feel we are talking past each other. At the heart, I said “Audible is centralized”, which still seems to me indisputable. Mitch is saying “that’s not bad”, which isn’t what I said or even think. It just is what it is. Anything that has a central catalog in one place is centralized. This is an architectural statement that Mitch seems to be interpreting as a moral one. I’m highly confusable and this has done it to me.
